The weed killing train that I used to see regularly in the 1960s was made up of an engineers coach , a couple of tool vans,  a tank wagon for the chemicals and on which the spray pipes were also mounted , several redundant steam locomotive tenders for the water supply and a brake van.

All in all quite a heath robinson set up.

Shaun check with Chris how many are available still as you may need to order it sooner rather than later if numbers are getting low but you do not pay anything until its despatched though.

About 50 loco sets at the time of posting this, and they are due in the next 6 - 8 weeks.  Wagons to follow around Christmas.

Shaun get an order in ASAP. And we promise Chris won't charge you until the goods are despatched!

Special commissions are not undertaken lightly because of the huge commercial risk involved so they tend to be items which are likely to sell well and probably sell quickly.

With only "50 or so" loco sets left out of a run of 504 I'd be putting my hand up now and not waiting till Christmas. Once they're gone they're gone.
